I don't think he said he already bought the parts, but if he did it's kinda sad.

The games you want to play will only use 2 of those 6 cores, so they kinda are being wasted.

That seems like an adequate system for those games for High settings most likely. Upgrading the CPU would help but if you buy an i3 like avenseth12 said then you'd have to buy a new motherboard and re-install your old OS and that would be a big pain just to upgrade to an i3. If you're going to switch over to Intel processors and do all that work and spend so much money then you'd might as well go all out and buy an i5-4690k. If I were you, I'd save yourself some money and time and stay with the AMD CPU you have now or just buy a better AMD processor such as the FX-8320. Btw, I really think the CPU you have now should work fine with those games but if for some reason you don't get the performance you want they you could just buy a newer, better AMD CPU to save you money and time.
